Greta Hauer: IMMUNE ZONE
curated by sarahcrown

Sept 21 – Oct 3, 2016
Opening September 21, 7-9 pm


ROOMSERVICE is pleased to announce IMMUNE ZONE, an exhibition by London-based Artist and Designer Greta Hauer (Germany/UK), who will transform the Gallery into an enclave for outsiders and the lonesome.

The exhibition proposes a type of legal futurism in which the societal and political system is defined by un-adapted norms and codes of the local culture. By interweaving fiction and reality, the work stages modes of kinship and offers a sense of belonging and alternative bureaucratic conventions.

Greta Hauer spent more than a month in Brooklyn, NY, interacting with the local community and diverse subcultures and studying their stereotypes of communication, daily objects, codes of conduct and claiming territories. Drawing on these moral and visual codes, Hauer developed objects of art, fictional legal guidelines and an illusory environment that will be accessible by the audience.

The constitutive elements of the exhibition will therefore narrate the local history and its problems, and at the same time offer ideas of gangland and an alternative to today’s already conflicting politics. By entering the IMMUNE ZONE the visitors will find themselves within a scripted space, defined by imaginary laws that undermine our conventional ideas of protective measures.

The opening reception will be held on September 21, 2016 from 7-9 pm. The artist will be present. The exhibition will run from September 21 to October 3, 2016.

In conjunction with the exhibition and with the annual Bushwick Open Studios, a legal walk-in service will be provided on October 1st from 3 to 5 pm. Please contact the gallery for further details.


About the artist:

Greta Hauer is a Designer and Artist living and working in London who graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2014.
